Recently whenever I minimize Outlook, the program automatically closes. I have made not changes so I don't know what happened. Was there an update that affected this? Is there a seeting that can be changed to stop this from happening? I couldn't find a specific setting relating to this issue.

No, it doesn't automatically close, it minimizes to the Notification Area of the Taskbar just to the left of the clock. If you don't want it to do that, right-click the Outlook icon in the system tray and uncheck "Hide When Minimized".
